      • When I first moved to NYC a few years back, I stayed in Castle Hill in the Bronx, JLo's area. The Latin culture is definitely prominent there. Just as prominent as any Latin American country I've visited.

        Funny story is I had met my dad's family for the first time. I'm thinking they were just Black American, but, turns out, they are mostly Afro-Latinos from Panama and DR.
        Diva!!!

              Interesting. But that’s still America and I’m speaking from the other side. I’m not a USA citizen, I don’t belong to the USA community. I’m a Latin guy who was born and raised in Latin America.

              I’m sure J.Lo is a referent for American women who have latin roots or USA citizens with Latin heritage ... But outside of that she did nothing for Mexicans or for South America. As I Latin guy that I am J.Lo represents absolutely nothing to me and from my side somone like Shakira is an accurate referent of my culture.

                • Musically, there is some room for improvement with her current era, that's true. On the other hand, people using old videos to label celebrities as whatever-phobe are the worst. I wish people would stop this stupid cancel culture!

                      • The Grammy’s solidified their non-relevance by rewarding Billie all those awards and recognition. I would’ve given Big Bird a Grammy for its vocal on Sesame Street over the slew of awards they handed her on a silver platter just to gain ratings from a lucrative demo.

                        guess what… the show has been in decline mode and as Halsey said, means absolutely ish.

                            But Halsey didn't deserve a Grammy either.

                              Yet if Halsey was nominated and won she would have ran up, half stumbling, half crying to greatfully accept her award and thank her fans and thank the Grammys and thank God and thank everyone. So yeah her attention seeking little woe is me speech at whatever award show she did it on was tragique.

                                    Yea everyone acts holier than thou on the internet. There is no space for growth and apologies cancels you faster (but the cancellations are completely empty).

                                              This. The only person I can take seriously on that is Frank Ocean. He addressed it once, said he was not going to nominate again, did not and walked away respectfully. A man with integrity and principles and self respect. The rest ? Self entitled little whinebags who feel they deserve every accolade and basically say that the people who won didn't deserve it yet continue to nominate year after year, seeking validation from an organization they claim to be meaningless. The lack of self awareness and respect for your fellow artists.

                                                    I think physical singles in stores were a thing of the past when he started. I mean Tay Tay only has 280k. And Drake doesn't do those "web sales for fans" things that a lot of artists have been doing to bump their week one.
